Entryway Lighting

An entryway is a guest's first impression of your home. Choose the right size for your space—a small light will look dwarfed, while a too-big chandelier can overpower a room. 

The two priorities for Entry & Foyer Lighting are to deliver overall brightness through general lighting and to provide a visually appealing space with accent lighting. In order to accomplish this task, you should incorporate these two layers of lighting into your space.

You may need one or several types of light fixtures in a room, depending on the layout, size, aesthetic and space available. Here is a checklist of lighting types to consider for a properly lit entry and foyer:
